Last week we looked at reports from China and Israel about a new "Internet of Things" malware strain called "Reaper" that researchers said infected more than a million organizations by targeting newfound security weaknesses in countless Internet routers, security cameras and digital video recorders (DVRs). Now some botnet experts are calling on people to stop the "Reaper Madness," saying the actual number of IoT devices infected with Reaper right now is much smaller.
Arbor Networks said it believes the current actual size of the Reaper botnet fluctuates between 10,000 and 20,000 bots total. Arbor notes that this can change any time.
Today’s businesses are producing so much data that a core part of IT strategy is just finding somewhere to store it.
